Last year Estanc decided to become free of all 8 company cars with internal combustion engine and invest in electric car
This decision was a no-brainer, being one of the first actions we wanted to accomplish even before starting to fully develop our sustainability strategy at the beginning of 2019.
Our entire production is powered by renewable energy so it only made sense to match the vehicle with zero-emissions. Our Audi E-Tron with registration plate ETRON 3, number three embodying the „people, profit, planet“ framework for sustainable business, is being used for company errands as well as for business trips.
We have also installed an extra charging point to help increase the convience among environmental stewardship-minded emoployees and visitors who are welcomed to charge their electric cars during the visit.
What if all cars were electric?
Transportation is one of the top 5 greenhouse gas producer in the world. According to European Environment Agency, 30% of the EU´s CO₂ emissioon comes from transportation. By 2040, it’s predicted that 35% of the world’s cars will be electric. We believe that it’s only a matter of time before the internal combustion engine sputters out for good and driving habits get cleaner.
Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation is key to slowing climate change and making sure our planet stays a healthy place to live. Electric car that is using electricity produced from renewable energy sources produces around 60-70 g/km of CO₂ which makes it pollute about half as much as traditional cars. As the technology becomes more mainstream, it is likely to become even more efficient and sustainable.
